Part 10: Stearn rebuild.....My enforcers butt lift!

Finally got around to rebuilding the stearn of the Enforcer. As you can see later she'll begin to shape up and look very similar to a inboard Convincor. First step was to clean up the splashwell cutout. I cut up to the bottom line of my original level line(I left about a inch below the line just in case). I then sanded the edge and the surface down to the gel. These pics show what she looked like after I was finished. See my "Loosin the caboose" post for before pics.

Part 9: Transom clamps and gluing/ bedding the transom

Posted 11-12-2008 at 07:00 PM by Old Hickory (Old Hickory's 1983 Checkmate Enforcer Restoration)
Updated 12-15-2009 at 07:24 PM by Old Hickory (found lost pics)

As fate would have it I have lost all of the pics I took during the glueing and bedding of my new transom. So the following will be a discussion of the process. If I recover the files I will post pics.

But, before I get into that discussion I am going to repost here, The plans and and materials list for my Giant Jorgensen transom clamps.

New Checkmate Owner

Posted 09-18-2008 at 10:45 PM by Ray Haen

My 8 month search is over. In July I purchased a 1994 185 Pulse with a Mercury 175 hp black max motor.The boat is very red and in great shape. It immediately became the talk of the lake that our cabin is on. It looks like new and at 60 plus miles per hour it is impossible to miss. We absolutely love it. I am 60 years old but still have a need for speed. The handeling is as good and predictable at 60 as it is at 20. Fantastic handeling boat. Thanks to Kip Combs for all of assistance during my months...

Posted 06-26-2008 at 12:37 AM by jimbigler

Just bought my first Checkmate, and everyone will probably think I'm lying when I say what I gave for her. She's a '78 20' Trimate w/ an '86 115 hp Mercury. The hours on the boat are only 1500, the interior and exterior look great, as well as the boat canvas and canopy. It came equipped w/ a Humminbird fish finder, new trailer tires, a new spare, tow lines, paddles, anchors, trailer lights are new as well. It also came w/ 2 new batteries, all for $500.00. I had to repair a seat cushion,...
